I have a Super Tak 50 1.4 that I very much like. I would like to get a Helios 44-2. I love the images that come that I have seen. My question is do all the Helios 44-2 share the same Super Tak mount; basically will my current adapter work with any Helios 44-2 or do I need to be looking for specific mount descriptions on ebay?

Just make sure it is M42 (which most of them are anyway).

Thanks

Just tested my 6D at infinity on the Super Tak 501.4 and it does stick! Not too bothered because I normally use it as a portrait lens

To be honest I am rarely impressed with M42 lenses at infinity anyway.  I don't feel like they resolve as well as modern lenses at that distance (perhaps due to the adapting process or just the nature of the optics).  At close to medium range, however, there are some fabulous options.

Hey guys, I just got my 6D and I have a 85mm Jupiter 9 M42 lens. I was reading about the adapters with AF confirm, but also they said not all of them compatible with the 6D? Can you guys help me out and tell me where to buy, and which one?

I'm not aware of any adapters with focus confirm chip not working with the 6D so long as it is a Canon mount.  I've used multiple ones off Ebay (usually around $10) in both M42 and K-Mount and haven't had any issues.

I have SMC Tak 28mm f/3.5 and it works fine on my Canon 6D.  No hang.  It does vignette fairly heavily wide open, however.  It's actually a very cool lens on the 6D.

I don't know if there is any physical difference.  The SMC refers to the coating (Super Multi Coated), not necessarily a physical difference.  Just know that with many of these lenses the difference between hanging and not hanging is very slight.  Just the difference in the adapter could make all the difference.  All I can tell is that my copy does not hang at all.

There is quite a bit of compatibility advice/info here:

I am loving my Contax-Zeiss 25 F2.8 on my 1DX.

My Helios 44-2 works fine with no mirror clearance issues on my 5D3. My 50mm Pentax f/1.4 I have a thin plastic shim to prevent it from hitting the mirror; it no longer focuses to infinity, but works fine with hyperfocussing.
I also have no problem with: Porst 35mm f/2.8, MIR-24 35mm f/2.0, Kaligor 135mm f/2.8, Sankyo Kohki Komura 135mm f/3.5 and my Zenit 16mm fisheye lens. I think the 28mm Pentax is fine, but I haven't tested that one on the 5D3.

Just to add more confusion: I have a copy of that same lens (SMC Takumar 3.5/28) and the mirror *does* hang on my 6D. Not only that, but it does hang quite a bit, or in other words, it does take a fairly significant amount of rotating away from infinity to free the mirror.

And while I'm at it, I might as well add more info about other m42 lenses I have.

I found the following lenses to cause the mirror to hang on my 6D at infinity:
- SMC Takumar 3.5/28mm
- Super Takumar 3.5/35mm
- Carl Zeiss Jena Tessar 2.8/50mm

On the other hand, the following cause no hanging whatsoever:
- Meyer Optik Oreston 1.8/50mm
- Super Takumar 1.8/55mm
- Helios 44-2 2/58mm
- Super Takumar 1.9/85mm
- Avanar DC 2.8/135mm
- Tokina RMC 2.8/135mm (that one with CY mount, not m42)

- Tokina RMC 2.8/135mm (that one with CY mount, not m42)

It's almost absurd how much variation there is.  I love my Helios 44-2, but it DOES hang at infinity for me with multiple adapters.  Ditto for Super Tak or SMC Tak 50mm f/1.4, but I also have no issues with the SMC Tak 55mm f/1.8.  Typically none of the 85mm+ focal lengths cause any issue.  The Super Tak 35 is really bad on full frame, but I loved it when I shot crop and still like it on my EOS M.

Hello. I ve never registered to this forum even if I read it very often. Now, I want your help.

I found the following prime lenses:

1) Helios 44m-4 58mm f/2 (ZENIT)
2) MIR 1B 37mm f/2.8

I have the 6D and I found some cheap adapters (m42 to EF) at ebay.

My questions are:

1) Is it possible to create a problem at the mount ring with those adapters?

2) What is the mirror hang at some focus distances? Is there any possibility to damage the mirror or something?

Thank you in advance!
